Wednesday PIE 2.1.17

February 1, 2017

February is the month dedicated to the Holy Family. February gives us a space of time between the Christmas celebrations and the increased focus on Jesus’s public life and ministry, which occurs in Lent. It is a transition from the feast of Christmas to the fasting of Lent. Therefore, traditionally February has become a time to recall the Holy Family; within the Holy Family is where Jesus spent the time between his birth and embarking on his public journey. We will be offering our February prayer up for the families of our fifth graders. We would like our fifth graders to bring in pictures of their family members so we can display them on our bulletin board.

Pope Francis recited this Prayer to the Holy Family

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in you we contemplate the splendor of true love,
to you we turn with trust. Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that our families
too may be places of communion and prayer, authentic schools of the
Gospel and small domestic Churches. Holy Family of Nazareth, may
families never again experience violence, rejection and division: may all
who have been hurt and scandalized find ready comfort and healing. Holy
Family of Nazareth, make us once more mindful of the sacredness and
inviolability of the family, and its beauty in God’s plan. Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
graciously hear our prayer.

Fifth Grade Parents: Our class has been diligently working on the study of Native American tribes. They have done extensive research in the computer lab to record notes on the many facets of their regional tribes. I am sure you are aware that we are currently creating posters, homes, and replicas of four main regional native groups in North America. Next week, we will be hosting a Native American Exhibit. Please, join us on Wednesday, February 8. You are invited to join us and peruse the various displays. Our exhibit will be open from 9:30-11:20 and 12:15-2:15. Looking forward to seeing you. Take care and God Bless! Mrs. Thomas

Remember to return the baby bottles that were sent home last week by February 10th.

Please check your FACTS account to see how many Angel Points you have accrued. Those of you who have reached 30 points do not need to sign he chart anymore; however, we do appreciate your continued support. There are twenty-one families who have not earned any points or very few. Each point is worth $10. Rather than paying for those points, why not put in time helping out at our Tricky tray?
